Muller Martini creates sales at Graphics of the Americas

Press release from the issuing company

Hauppauge, New York – Visitors to the Muller Martini exhibit (#691) at this year’s Graphics of the Americas show, February 4-6 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, left the show having gained important insights about how they can add speed, productivity and profit potential to their businesses. In addition to providing print finishing expertise throughout the show, Muller Martini demonstrated its AmigoPlus perfect binder, its SigmaTower cooling station, and its Esprit three-knife trimmer as an in-line system. “Typically this type of end-to-end finishing system and the diverse options it offers have been available only with larger, high output technology,” said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. “By taking many of the same impressive benefits found on bigger equipment and combining those benefits into a full function entry level system, we are making smaller runs more efficient and more cost-effective.” The Muller Martini AmigoPlus perfect binder runs at 300-1,500 cycles per hour and it is an intelligent choice for high quality adhesive binding of books, catalogs, annual reports and many other varied jobs. AmigoPlus provides extremely quick set up and changeover, which are keys to successfully competing in the short- and medium-run markets. With AmigoPlus, printers and binderies can explore many new possibilities for their businesses, generating increased sales by offering their customers a way to achieve superior perfect binding results rapidly and affordably. SigmaTower is a compact cooling tower which ensures that perfect bound books and adhesives are optimally cooled. SigmaTower is part of the Muller Martini SigmaLine, the fully integrated commercial-quality solution for book-on-demand production. The Esprit three-knife trimmer delivers the best possible trim quality highly economically. Esprit has an automatic, motorized makeready system and can handle a diverse array of jobs, making it an exceptional complement to the AmigoPlus perfect binder. During the show, Muller Martini sold an Amigo Plus binding system and also sold a Valore saddle stitcher. Valore is a 6,000 c/hr. stitcher designed for companies that are either entering the saddle stitching marketplace or wish to add further capabilities to their existing semi-automatic saddle stitching systems. Valore, which has automated controls to reduce set up time substantially and is simple to operate, can also be seamlessly coordinated with flatsheet collators. Nearly 23,000 industry professionals attended the Graphics of the America show, coming from many different nations throughout the world. The attendance figures from this year’s show represent an increase of approximately 15% as compared to 2004. More than 450 companies exhibited their products and services.
